Sisters, we are calling YOU 𓁿 into this Women’s Circle to move deeper into darkness, the darkness within each of us and the time of darkness of long winters. Darkness has aspects of chaos, dancing with the shadow, of creative possibility, fertility, of slowing down, bringing order into life, of recovering, resting, healing and of course: The Unknown.
Yes, we will experience the light returning at Winter Solstice, but at the same time we know that a long period of darkness and cold still awaits us. We also know that we are needing a strong base to nourish and warm our self and possibly others during this time. This is a good time for each of us to re-experience each our own relationship to source, to the cycle of life and our own inner light.
This is a ceremony honoring darkness and the light within it, reconnecting to source and the seasons through the Great Goddess with her many faces and in her cycles. Whether each of us finds herself in the maiden, or the bearer of life in any form, or the crone, or in all at once – in the circle of woman we are able to reconnect to the dream of life and that each of us is part of the dream of life on planet earth.
We will dance, we will be still – we may find ways to relate to the darkness anew. During the ceremony, we are invited to drop into the darkness and to connect to our own inner light, following the glimpses of moving towards what is showing up – so that we may find pathways to attend to self as well to others and the world.
Kerstina will be bringing in parts of her own work as well as BodyMindCentering and Continuum Movement together with Shamanic Practice. She comes from a shamanistic approach in the lineage of her friend and teacher Elke Arun Frank to support the dream of a fulfilling life in each of us, emphasizing the connection to “those who stand behind us”, orienting the self through this support and acting in the world from there.
